Music 101 for Saturday 3 April 2021
Welcome to Music 101! We have a great show coming up today!
12.20 Patea Māori Club
Patea Māori Club’s iconic 1983 single ‘Poi E’ is finally being acknowledged as an important part of our rich musical history as the recipient of the 2021 IMNZ Classic Record.
Recorded and released in late 1983, the single spent 22 weeks on the charts and four weeks at no. 1, which was unprecedented for a song in te reo Māori.
'Poi E' was written by te reo advocate, linguist and composer, Ngoi Pewhairangi with music by Dalvanius Prime.The song was a way to encourage young Māori to be proud of being Māori.
Dalvanius' nephew Tuteri Dal Rangihaeata talks with Charlotte about the impact of the single, and shares some previously unknown details about Dalvanius.

2PM LIVE - Mali Mali
A community worker by day, singer-songwriter by night. Mali Mali (real name Ben Tolich) has been creating heartfelt meditative chamber-pop for the last decade.
2020 was a busy year for Auckland-based Mali Mali. He released his 4th album I Was Told to Keep an Eye Out right after recovering from Covid-19 in April, then during lockdown, started recording his latest EP Kill and Throw, which he released in October.
Aside from a few shows, Mali Mali hasn’t really had a chance to bring these new songs to life for a live audience. So it’s such a treat to have him perform for us live tomorrow on Music 101.

3.30 Nick Bollinger - In the Spirit
Nick Bollinger’s guide to Black America’s rich tradition of religious song.
Black Americans made some of the most earth-shaking sounds of the 20th century. For a start they invented jazz and the blues, and today it would be hard to find a corner of the planet where the impact of those vital musical forms hasn’t been felt. But they also produced one of the most profound bodies of religious music. Join Nick Bollinger for a guide to Black America’s rich tradition of religious song: In the Spirit.
We're playing Nick's full piece in parts over the next 4 weeks on Music 101. If you'd like to listen to the full production, click below.
